Wish I had read back further in these TripAdvisor reviews because the current ones seem misleading. Upon entering my room after a long day's drive, I was overwhelmed by an odor of mildew so strong I wondered if something had died in there. This is not a place to stay if you have allergies or breathing difficulties. I had already... More

The Parkside Inn is about 25 years old, and I don't think any updates had been made to the room we stayed in (1st floor double). Having said that, the room was clean and had everything we needed, including a small refrigerator and microwave. My only real issue was the strong musty smell. Because the hotel is seasonal, I suspect... More

My wife and I spent part of our Honeymoon in Door County. We stopped at the Parkside Inn without a reservation. The man in the office was very helpful. He told us that this was the last night of the season(October 25th). The room was very nice. It was $69 for a large room with a fridge and microwave. The... More

At 25 years old, this is one of the newer motels in Door County. Located in a very relaxing part of the Door---Ellison Bay, up near the top. Away from all of the hustle and bustle of the lower towns, but close to the popular Charlie's Smokehouse and the Washington Island Ferry. Awesome rates at $46.00 per night, while many... More

We recently spent 3 nights there. My wife attended an art workshop across the street at the lakefront park while I explored northern Door County via bicycle. Good location. Clean. Management was very nice and very helpful.

It's a clean 3 star hotel. I wouldn't want to stay here for a week, but it was fine for a night or two. It was quiet and included a small refrigerator and microwave. Our room had fairly new carpeting. The only real negative that I can come up with involves the beds. They weren't what I would call comfortable.... More

I had read previous reviews and wasn't sure about staying at the Parkside Inn. However I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. There were three of us, each of us having a room on the second floor. The rooms appear to have been recently updated and were very clean and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful, making good suggestions... More

I am sorry you had a bad experience as most guests feel that it is a great place. Built in 1990 we updated bathrooms, flat screen tv's, now we do have new comforters and 4 pillows per bed. All of our linens are sent out to the professional laundry company who services most Door County resorts/hotels/motels. We will let them... More

Room was very comfortable and quiet. Included microwave and refrigeratorand coffee maker. Very minimal continental breakfast. And one of the muffins we tried was moldy. We did not stay here for the breakfast however, so we had brought along our own food or ate breakfast out.
